We all rushed out of the door with day-two hair that needed a quick spritz of dry shampoo, but how many times did it backfire?

 

Wrong use of dry shampoo can weigh down your locks and make them appear lifeless and flat when the main aim is to give you extra day of bounciness. Remember it is used as a prevention, especially for those who are prone to oily hair, rather than a cure so avoid applying every day as this will clog up the follicles and prevent hair growth.

 

A&E have tried out a variety of products on the market and learned the best tricks to make dry shampoo your hairs best friend.

 

Aim For The Hairline

Part the hair into 2-inch sections from front to back and spray at the roots. Start with the hair line round the face, hold the bottle 8 inches away and don’t focus on one area for too long to avoid powder build up.

 

Blend Blend Blend

With fingers rub the powder into your hair and give it a good shake so you have some of the dry shampoo moving towards the ends. Afterwards, brush it through for an even spread.

 

When You Only Have 10 Seconds

Focus on the T-zone, front of the head and along the parting, as that’s the biggest giveaway of day-old hair.

 

Leave It Down

You might be tempted to tie your hair up in a scruffy bun but that will actually make the hair look messier. Dry shampoo already delivers an undone-cool look so add a few rough waves with straighteners instead.

 

Tip: Do you use dry shampoo after a work out? It’s time to break the habit as you are actually layering powder over sweat particles that results in a greasy finish and itchy scalp. Instead, use it before the gym as it soaks up all the excess residue that you can brush out afterwards before topping up.
